My little guy is giving me a run for my money. OMG, I had forgotten how much a new walker could get into. I feel like all this chasercise (yes, I made that up) is definitely helping me to burn off some calories. Remember, I told you guys that he was doing a fast walk-hobble? Well, he’s getting better at improving his run.
It’s fun watching him get better and better at walking and running. Then on the flip side it’s also scary. I can certainly start to see dare devil/fearless streak in him. Just today alone he’s gone from climbing and standing up in the couch to trying to climb up the tv stand. He can even grab hold of the tray on his high chair and with his foot on the foot rest, pull himself up.
He’s getting into the laundry baskets when I’m trying to wash clothes. He can even open the dryer door. I had no clue he was that strong. I’ve caught him attempting to pry open the frig and reaching for the oven handle!
Talk about scaring my wits out! I haven’t a clue what I’m going to do with this little guy. Let’s hope that I last until this newness of walking wears off. I miss my cuddly lap baby. The only time he wants me to hold him is if I’m eating something he wants or he wants to nurse.
Now worries though, Moo is taking advantage of him not wanting to be held. I think that with all the chasing around of her little brother that I do has her feeling a bit left out. So, she’s always asking me to hold her, give her big hugs and covering me with kisses when I have a chance to sit down.. I think that after Halloween, we’re going to have a girls’ day.
Maybe, we can do manicures and pedicures. I want her to always feel that she’s just as loved and wanted as her brother. Meanwhile, I think that I might actually invest in a baby gate or two to keep my little man out of his own way and out of danger.
How did you keep your new walker safe?
